Easter Tablescapes for Everyday Living

Easter Tablescapes…

So, in my perfect world, I have elaborate decorations and tablescapes for every occasion and season of the year. Alas, my world is not perfect, and I have a cute little member of the family that prevents those elaborate details….
Meet….Mercy Grace….aka “Cujo Kitty” ! I posted about her right after we rescued her. Needless to say, she has been quite a furry handful…but we love her!
 So to accommodate the need to keep my sanity prevent unnecessary breakage and frustration, I chose to simplify both of my tablescapes this Easter season! Isn’t it funny how your life changes so much depending on what “season of life “ you are in? 
In my dining room, it is all about these beautiful decoupaged Easter eggs, nestled in little nests with soft moss…

  I love the overall look of the simple jute runner and unique, round, wicker chargers…
The cute little mason jar votives are a steal! Get to a Target, they are in the dollar spot, as a set of three!
In my kitchen, we are all about the moss bunnies
and this adorable burlap, hand-painted table runner {visit this post to see how I made this cute little runner }…
The pop of carrot orange in my kitchen is perfect…just so cheerful with the moss green!
Now, all I have to do is keep our little bundle of energy and fluff off of these tables and we are good! So, tell me, what season of life are you in?

    I’m not laughing AT you, I’m laughing WITH you! I have lived 2 1/2 years with a perpetual kitten and nothing is safe! I’m astounded at all the things that can be turned into a toy. Love it all and hope some of it lasts! lol ~ Maureen

    I am in the season of my kitchen table being in constant use! 3 meals a day plus 2 or 3 snack times plus endless hours of laundry-folding, homework, play-doh, paper-cutting and coloring, coloring, coloring! But I love the green and orange look. I’ll just have to simplify your simplified to one elegant centerpiece that can easily be whisked away and returned as necessary. But one day I’ll be in the season of beautiful tablescapes that stay just the way I put them…and then I’m sure I’ll be missing the little hands that used to dirty them up…or so I’m told! 😉

    SO fabulous!!! Love the carrots and the “carrot” napkins in the kitchen and really, really love the runner. Your little kitty is pretty darn adorable too. We have a couple of fluff balls around here too so I can definitely relate! Hope you have a great week! xo

    What a stinking cute little fluff ball! Cujo… lol. So funny 😉 Mine are old enough to stay foff the table so I am good there. If they would would just take their fur balls outside, I would be golden! I am lucky to have two tables like you, so I can always decorate at least one =) yay. hehe. Happy Spring~It’s looking marvelous at your place!! I love the 2 big bunnies on the formal table… then you showed the moss bunnies and I like them too =)

    I love the candle sticks with the nests and the chargers. I also love the bunny silhouette on the burlap. All of it is too cute! I would say I’m in the season of…I want and can have awesome fancy tablescapes but somehow I just can’t get there. I have trouble finding “exactly” what I need to make it “perfect”. Oh well, I’ll keep working on it! Where did you get the chargers?

    What a cutie Miss Mercy Grace is! My life is currently being rearranged by a rescue cat too. She is constantly rearranging all my knick knack shelves so she can have a place to sit and I’m always finding her in places I never expected. I’m not sure I’m ready to find out what she would do with a tablescape. It’s kind of hard to correct her when all I can think is “oh how cute, where’s my camera.” BAD Mama!

    Seriously? Does cute get any cuter? I.want.one. :-)
    Oh, your decor is cute too, I’m posting about nests tomorrow, they are so springy and in my opinion ~French farmhouse~
    thanks for stopping by!

    Hi – Happened upon your lovely blog while looking at a linky party…and as I started to scroll down I began to laugh my head off…I have a rescue kitten too, although she is now 1 1/2 yrs old, a beautiful Tabby named Cassie Mae. She thinks that everything and especially all my holiday decor, belongs to her. She has hiding spots in the house (we found one spot behind our hutch in the dining room with christmas, easter and fourth of july trinkets all stashed in a row)!! So I understand your limited decorating this year. We need to have both in our lives…I wouldn’t trade my holiday decor and definitely would never trade my sweet kitten but somehow we all had to find a way to co-exist and get through that “season of life” you speak of. Good luck with those eggs though. Cassie would have them down and gone. Hugs, Dorinda
